Despite leading AEL Limassol to the quarterfinals of the Cypriot cup and to sixth position in the local league standings, Nir Klinger was sacked as coach of the club on Monday. Klinger signed a three-year contract with Limassol in May, but has claimed that the club's management was looking to get rid of him ever since he decided to miss the derby match against Anorthosis Famagusta as it fell on Yom Kippur. Klinger, who led Maccabi Tel Aviv to the league title in the 2002/03 season, has coached in Cyprus since 2006, guiding Paralimni, AEK Larnaca and AEP Paphos before joining Limassol.
